On October 16, 2020 the scared panic we feel everyday really set in. We noticed a lot of bruising on Lukas (our 5 year old) and then we saw a rash covering his bottom. We immediately got him into the doctor with a gut wrenching feeling something was wrong. That evening they transferred us to St Louis Children’s Hospital after some very alarming blood work. It was there at 1:30am they came in to tell us he has Leukemia. 
We have 4 children and Lukas is our red headed spunky child. He loves to play tricks, to play outside, have nerf wars, and cuddle. It’s so hard seeing him in the hospital with zero energy. I’m setting up this fundraiser to help with household costs as my husband, Benji, and I are staying 2 hours away from our 3 others kids. Neither of us are working so anything helps.
